Home from Michigan

Well I am home from Detroit, for what will probably be the last travel tournament for Robert and his hockey team for the season. They have Pacific District coming up in a week and a half...I am hoping for a good outcome, but...

The weekend was pretty good. The boys did fair...they made it to the semi-finals, but lost to the Motor City Metal Jackets with a score of 4-3. It was an exciting game as they were down 4-0 in the 3rd period and started to battle back, but the game ending buzzer rang before they were able to tie it up.

Aside from hockey, we had to deal with the excitment of a winter storm which dumped 8+ inches of snow on the Detroit area on Sunday.

Of course, the California boys were ready for a snowball fight :)

We got home after 1am this morning and I have taken today off from work to catch up on household things...after the washer repairman finishes up with the washer. They are here right now installing the new parts - basically rebuilding the whole thing - as I type this. It will be nice to have this fixed, as doing laundry is a big part of my daily routine :)

On the Stitching Front...I have started the ornament for Sharon for the Ornament Swap group. I like what I am stitching and it is coming out nicely. It was the perfect thing to work on while on the airplane.

That is about all for now...until next time, remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!

Welcome back! The snowstorm and snowball fights sound like fun. Sure it's better to be in warmer temps though!

Glad you had a good trip. If you're like me, you're glad hockey season is winding down for the year:)

And now you know why I winter in Arizona. That happens far too often for me. LOL

I had to chuckle at the California boys wanting a snowball fight... I sure hope that washing machine repair guy gets it fixed for you. Have a great day Lisa
as always
